Learn from experience

The principle

PRINCE2 project teams learn from experience: lessons are sought, recorded and acted upon during the complete project lifecycle.

Learning from experience is constantly present in the PRINCE2 method:
At project start, where previous or similar projects are reviewed for lessons that could be applied
At project progress, where lessons are included in reports and reviews to seek possibilities for improvement
At project closure, where lessons are passed on as possibilities identified to improve.

It is the responsibility of everyone involved in a project to seek for lessons, and not to wait for someone else to provide them.
